Prophet Song by Paul Lynch

Staff Pick

This Booker nominee takes its cues from Orwell and Atwood but centers its dystopia on the domestic, following Eilish Stack's efforts to keep her husband and four children together as a new police state attempts to tear them all apart. Rather than watching countries dissolve and refugees flee from the comfort of armchairs, here Lynch explores what happens when these upheavals happen on our doorstep. With sparse punctuation that gives the prose an extra charge, he makes this prospect terrifyingly beautiful.
